My mother who is in a memory unit tripped in the courtyard yesterday and broke her clavicle. As a nurse, I know that this is very painful and there isn't a lot to be done about it. Of course they gave her some pain medication but I'm afraid that the pain meds are going to reduce her cognitive abilities even further. I'm going to be going to see her tomorrow. Until then, my brother is with her. I could really use some support through this one.
